In good news for the environment, Judge Philip Rumsey ruled in favor of Dryden in the fracking lawsuit against a Denver-based fracking company, which spent over 5 million dollars to buy up 22,000 acres of land. Rumsey found a clause in the state’s gas laws that does not prohibit municipalities from preventing gas drilling, or using zoning laws to keep out the gas companies. He cited that the supercedure law that governs the mining industry covers the gas laws as well. The case is expected to be appealed within the next month. Several other cities across the state have also banned fracking within their limits, but gas companies are contending that this is against state laws.In good news for the environment, Judge Philip Rumsey ruled in favor of Dryden in the fracking lawsuit against a Denver-based fracking company, which spent over 5 million dollars to buy up 22,000 acres of land.
